Dr. Ben Carson - Too Timid, Meek and Fragile to be President?

    Can you imagine Doctor Carson up against demonstrably assertive Putin? Or other intimidating dictators? I sure can’t ~ He’s a timid, introverted, and very strange medical man who exhibits bizarre habits and traits ~ He’s definitely NOT the guy to follow a Strong, Confident, Assertive, Thinking, & Calculating Leader like Barrack Obama ~

      For me Carson is too theocratic to be President. I can't take him seriously, he doesn't even understand the first amendment.

        I agree Duane ~ This is just another shortcoming of his as we dig down deep into his actual being and uncover the truth ~

        He seems to stretch everything he claims to believe in to the absolute EXTREME, which makes him appear to be a very strange character and as we all know, PERCEPTION can be interpreted as Reality, especially in politics ~

        I'm not so sure we can equate a microscopic in size medical procedure to such an enormous task as Managing the Globe, which is exactly what the President of the United States must do from one degree to another ~

        Moreover, we really don't have all the necessary documentaion to discover whether or not Dr. Carson is indeed a competent surgeon ~ Does he have any complaints or issues pending? Malpractice for instance? I personally have not inspected his medical records nor do I know of anyone in the press who has at this point ~

      I wouldn't mistake humility for weakness. Carson is very confident and has a definite game plan as to how to run his campaign. Carson is so much stronger and wiser than Obama, that it's not even funny. Why do you think every tin pan dictator is flexing their muscles at this time. Because they sense a weak America because the leadership is weak.

      Uncle Tom, meet Uncle Ben: The 'black conservative' is as big a myth as Santa Claus.  Instead he or she is merely an accomodationist for a position and philosophy that is contrary to the interests of all except the most affluent.

      Dr. Carson knows that It is always better in "the big house' as opposed to the field, we know. He applies the same bigotry toward Muslims and Islam that his Massa (GOP central) would not hesitate to apply to him, if he were not serving a more useful purpose in his role right now.

      As far as the GOP is concerned, he is no more credible than Alan Keys or Herman Cain (999). It does give the GOP the image of an of ethnic diversity that it craves, but we have to remember that it is just a holodeck program.....

        I would think a lack of political experience would be a plus. Look where political experience has gotten us. As far as naivety goes, the reason Carson is now first in the republican field is in part because he is a realist and has courage. It's the politically correct crowd who don't have the guts to talk about the real issues the country is facing!

      True. While where the candidate stands on the issues is most important, public image and leadership is also part of how one presents oneself.  Mitt Romney often came off as a little weak too. Image is important and when you "lean/cling to your wife" rather than stepping out front in leadership and strength it causes others to form opinions about your weaknesses.
      Then you have renegade rogues like Donald Trump.

      Carson doesn't understand that elected office holders represent the will of the people and follow the constitution of the United States.
      They should not execute their public office under the doctrine of ANY religious doctrine.

      A great example is Jimmy Carter, a very religious man, that executed his Presidency with hardly any reference to his religious beliefs. Ben Carson is no Jimmy Carter.

        When you watch him speak, his body language, the way he phrases his questions and answers, and how he is easily cowed by other candidates; all these things show he needs more experience.  He's good on paper, but as soon as I see him in front of a crowd I think, "I can probably badger this guy into doing pretty much whatever I tell him to."

          But, I would probably lean more towards a humble appearance, rather than one of  lacking confidence.

          Maybe it could also be that you are noting the missing rhetoric, or rhetorical flourishes you are used to seeing politicians use?

          Either way, I would dig a little deeper than media sound bites before forming such a definite opinion. Unless of course these traits and mannerisms are undeniably what you say they are.

            P.S. ~ I'm smart enough to understand that under President Obama's Progressive Administration we've managed miraculous changes which benefit the MAJORITY of Americans and not necessarily the wealthy who do NOT need the help ~ Changes like the following:

            * Healthcare for more than 6 Million Americans & Counting ~ ( 1 Major Step in the Right Direction toward Medicare for ALL at Birth)
            * Equality of Gay Rights, including Marriage

            * SUPPORT for Women's Healthcare

              Interesting list.  But we might look at the facts without the spin:

              Obama instituted a system of health insurance (not healthcare) designed in such a way that the poor cannot afford any care while insurance profits soar.

              SCOTUS has affirmed gay rights, without any input from Obama.

              Obama will, if he can, cause massive inflation by doubling salaries.  This will cause only harm to every citizen while no one gains anything at all.

              Don't know what he has done for women's healthcare, but that for men, children and families remains unchanged.

              I am neither a conservative nor a progressive. It is interesting how your brainwashing instantly goes to that topic. Whether I was one or the other has no bearing on the topic but your bias has to disseminate it and then make an argument about it and not the topic. Then we go off on a litany of spin reasoning on what Obama has accomplished. You are so caught up in your defense of your ideals you cannot reason your way to any other conclusions. Don't feel bad though as many have fallen for this crap from both sides of the spectrum. Until we can think and talk about what can work and not all the side show flash in the pan incendiary distractions such as who is a better person or who has a better theoretical opinion, then arguments such as yours will do nothing but divide and falter.

              By the way I voted for "W" twice and "O" twice. Not because they were the best candidate for the job. But because the opponent was worse than the eventual winner and they were the only choices given through this inept system. The philosophies and rhetoric by others who believe as you don't give us much to vote for in this corrupt political election system.

              Carson was asked a hypothetical question about what he would do in a situation like what happened in the Oregon shooting and he answered the question with the intent to plant in the minds of others that they should cooperate in their attempts to neutralize a threat.

              Think about the three American's in France who recently saved many lives by rushing their attacker. Often times a lone hero will get killed trying to neutralize the threat on his own, where a group effort would have a much better chance of success.

              Carson was speaking in general terms and was obviously not being offensive or critical to anyone. If Carson's advise is taken it could save many lives.

                  It's breathtaking how selective your outrage seems to be, you don't seem the least bit concerned about Obama politicizing the shooting before the bodies were even cold or the left wing media's near non existent reporting of the shooters targeting of Christians, no doubt you'd be crying crocodile tears if one of your politically favored groups were targeted such as Muslim, gays or blacks.

                  Dr Carson offers one real world solution to the problem of mass shooting and the liberals are hysterical with phony compassion while they turn a blind eye to the targeting of Christians worldwide and the slaughter of the unborn.

          No they don't.  While it is popular for the leftist to equate health insurance with health care the two are not the same.  One pays the insurance companies and the other provides care for people.

          While you can pretend that anyone with insurance can afford health care, it simply isn't true.  When deductibles are set in the thousands, people that have only tens or hundreds to devote to care, that care is simply not "affordable" in spite of the rallying cry of the left.

            Well wilderness, I have a Health Insurance Policy and so do Millions of Americans, including the 15 Million I mentioned above and it works out to be a WIN for ALL until we get to the ultimate in HealthCare Plan ~

            Everyone understands the FACT that a Deductable makes it much more affordable and eases the Financial Burden if and when unexpected Medical Treatment is Needed ~

            A $5,000 Deductable is much more Financially Feasable than a $75,000 Hospital Bill which is what that individual would be liable for if he/she did not have Health Insurance RIGHT? It's even a better scenario for the Financial Well Being of the Community ~

            Try driving around town WITHOUT Auto Insurance which in most cases, also has a common deductable and FEEL the Paranoia ~ Unless of course a HORSE or Burro is the antiquated transportation choice, but just try not to "HOOF" anybody ~

            I'm by no means advocating for insurance companies, they absolutely need to be extensively overhauled along with Wall Street, but at this point in time, COVERING 15 MILLION+ more Americans is unquestionably a step in the right direction and believe me, much better than Slavery ~ smile

              You need a little more care in reading here, just as in the 2nd amendment.  I did not compare Obamacare to slavery and you know it. 

              While you might have received medical care from the govt (via Obamacare), I doubt it.  Not unless you're rich enough to put out thousands as a deductible.  I, and the people getting "free" insurance aren't, and thus get no care.  "Covering" them for something they can't afford doesn't accomplish a thing beyond padding the bottom line of insurance companies - guess that's a high priority for the liberals, yes?

              And no, $5,000 isn't one whit better than $75000 when all you have is $50.

    Ben Carson's Heath Care Plan.  "We didn’t need the monstrosity of the $1.2 trillion Affordable Care Act. Even after it is fully implemented for 10 years, 23 million people still won’t have any health insurance.

    We need to re-establish a strong and direct relationship between patients and their physicians. For instance, I strongly support Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) which empower families to make their own decisions about their medical treatment. HSAs will also drive down health care costs while protecting patient choice and freedom.

    More freedom and less government in our health care system will mean lower costs, more access, and continued innovation."

      * After suggesting victims who find themselves in a violent situation should "Attack the ATTACKER(s)", he himself Exhibited Cowardice when finding himself in an armed robbery situation in the past
      * As a DOCTOR who should have BRIGHT Ideas in this area, his ONLY suggestion for American Health Care is Instituting Savings Accounts which is a Hijack of someone elses Simplistic, Old, Stale, Insufficient Concept
      * He believes Muslims should NOT be President of the United States ~ Obviously he has NEVER read OUR Constitution ~ Which other denomination will he DISCRIMINATE Against if given the POWER of OUR Presidency? Catholics, Christians, Jews etc?
      * According to him, I guess we live in a society which compares to Nazi Germany
      * He will Absolutely Discriminate Against OUR Veterans with his serious contemplation of TERMINATING the VA
      * He will TERMINATE Medicare leaving OUR Senior Citizens in a desperate situation
      * Last but definately NOT least of his NONSENSE, he has Compared OBAMACARE to Slavery

    Ben Carson has proposed the Termination of the Veteran's Administration, a Crucially Important Vessel from which many individuals receive Primary Health-Care ~ I wonder how he Feels and what he's Thinking Today ~ Remorse, Regret, Guilt, Hesitation, or a Steadfast Radical Vision? ~

    "The Chinese are in Syria" ~ This is NO Joke, the Good Doctor Ben Carson ACTUALLY said it and evidently thinks it's a fact ~

    Pathological LIAR? Delusional? This is just MORE Evidence to Support the claims that this individual is Fragile & Mentally Un-Sound ~ It's NO surprise but quite disturbing to think this guy is actually a Front Runner for the GOP ~

    If what he claims is true, and he has "TOP Secret Information" to prove the Chinese are ACTUALLY in Syria, why didn't he turn it over to the Obama Administration immediately so we could react appropriately to PROTECT our Forces?  He has an OBLIGATION as an American to do so, if he is indeed a citizen ~

    UPDATE ::

    Last week, while appearing on LIVE Television, Ben Carson made the Fantastic Claim that "The Chinese were in Syria" ~ Immediately, everyone understood this to be either a JOKE or just another of the Good Doctor's Spectacular Pathologically Enduced Fabrications ~

    When pressed lightly by "EVIL" Reporters simply trying to ascertain the Facts, an understandable process given his developing pattern of falsehoods, Dr. Carson fortunately did not have another mental meltdown, but rather promised the world he would provide definitive "Proof" of this outlandish claim BEFORE this past Weekend had ended ~ Why on earth he would choose to supply this critically important intelligence to the General PUBLIC versus passing it on to the Obama Administration is just another mystery ~

    This past weekend expired on November 15, 2015 ~ Has anyone heard from the Good Doctor yet?  I was Extremely Busy the past few days, did I miss any MAJOR Announcement regarding China? Has he provided his definitive "Proof" of his fantastical claim yet?

    Just Curious

    It appears as if Ben Carson is Sinking sad ~ NO Real Surprise to most Americans ~ Latest U-Mass POLL shows TRUMP Crushing Carson by 9 POINTS 31% to 22% ~ Polls Change but this is NOT a Positive sign for the Good Doctor ~

    So Many indicators pointing to WHY Ben Carson is tanking it's difficult to pinpoint just ONE, perhaps it's the Horrific Incident in Paris, or more likely it's his LATEST Delusional Comment about the "Chinese in Syria", a Ridiculous assertion which he promised "Evidence" of before the CLOSE of Last Weekend ~ This could be a Primary Factor in his Dwindling Support ~

    Come ON, I think REALISTICALLY at some point in time conservative republicans will arrive at a CONSENSUS and say we want Insane CRAZY for our nominee, NOT Delusional & Pathological which are 2 clear signs of Psychcological INSTABILITY Dr. Carson Exhibits with each and every Television / Radio Appearance ~

      I agree he made a poor comparison. But everyone has taken the wrong meaning and run with it. What he should have said is that the dog had come into contact with another dog who had rabies. It was a poor analogy. By the way we treat and quarantine dogs for up to 10 days for that. If they show signs of rabies the animal usually dies.

      I know you will come back on this with your usual lack of objectivity as your post reflects. By the way I was never going to vote for Ben Carson even before he declared his candidacy.

          I wouldn't collapse all of his domains. I work for and know a few doctors and some of them have some pretty crackpot ideas as well. Carson worked in the Johns Hopkins system which turns out some really great surgeons and especially in their work with children. Carson has a problem thinking on his feet when asked questions or commenting on issues outside he comfort zone. Either that or he has surrounded himself with some really bad advisers.

                  Politicians today surely know how to "opertate". They feed us a good line and watch us conjugate it. Comparing one to the other is like holding a mirror up between them. The proof of that is in the pudding as what they have done for us and not having placated us with stories. Make no mistake they all have an agenda. Our task is to figure out if it will benefit us.

                    We need leaders who, even if they can't remember World War II, can read history, can tell the good guys from the bad guys, and who know how wars are won. What we have now are people ignorant of history; pussyfooters who think half-measures and quarter-measures and a failed policy of "containment" against utterly ruthless enemies who play by no rules are a viable plan in an age of weapons of mass destruction like the world has never seen before.

                    Will the 2016 elections for President, Senate and House be fateful?

    UPDATE Report :

    Ben Carson was the republican version of Herman Cain, only difference is the Good Doctor has so much MORE "Disqualifying Baggage" ~

    According to reports taken from his book excerpts, Dr. Ben admitted to suffering from "Pathological Disease", a very serious illness which would certainly explain his irrationally DELUSIONAL Behavior and OUTLANDISH Nonsensical claims like "The Chinese are in Syria", a statement which drew visible public chuckles from at least one Obama Cabinet Member ~  And of course CHUCKLES from  every SANE American ~ He obviously NEEDS special attention & help to curtail this potentially dangerous medical cloud, maybe a hiatus designed to fight this condition? Just a suggestion ~

    According to recent Polls, by the droves, EVEN conservatives are abandoning this mentally un-stable, psychologically impaired human being ~ Apparently, there are limitations for even republicans when it comes to their nominee ~ CRAZY Sexist Bigoted Man who Despises Minorities & Women? YES !! Dangerous PATHOLOGICAL Nutcase? NEIN !! ~

    UPDATE:

    The "Delusional Mis-Adventures of Pathological Ben" ~ ANOTHER Entry for this BOOK Peddling Huckster ~ Last week, Donald Trump explained to a huge, electrified crowd of supporters that he remembers watching a large crowd of individuals "Cheering" in New Jersey as the Twin Towers Collapsed on 9/11 ~

    Who knows, it may be true or perhaps after a decade has passed, he may have mistakenly conflated conflicting events depicting differing occurences ~ Understandable after 12 plus years have elapsed ~ In his defense, a newspaper article was written shortly after 9/11 which seems to support his assertion even though the author of said piece now seems to have experienced a "Memory Lapse" ??? ~

    But wait, here comes DELUSIONAL Ben to C*O*N*F*I*R*M & V*A*L*I*D*A*T*E that he ALSO WITNESSED the SAME event in question ~ People Cheering on 9/11 ~ sad ~ Shortly thereafter, Doctor Ben said the following in paraphrase in reference to his previous statement pertaining to what he saw on that day ~ "I was HEARING & Thinking something diffrently at the time" ~ ???? WHAT ??? ~ How often does this happen to this guy? Evidently, when a reporter asked Doctor Ben about his claim he responded to something COMPLETELY Different ~ Like if he were to talk to Putin God Forbid after becoming President, and the Russian Leader said "Ben, we must be friends" but the Good Doctor while "Hearing & Thinking something Different" interprets these words as follows "Ben, you look and act like a 70 Year OLD Helmet Headed Hen" ~ smile So then WHAT?

    Well, now that the Good "DELUSIONAL" Doctor Ben Carson has been exposed for what he truly is and seems to be suffering from a severe case of "POLLitis", or more commonly known in the medical field as "PathologicallyQUACKEDBrainSurgeon-itis" , maybe now he can Partner Up with the "GOD-Father of Soul-PIES" Herman Cain to open NEIN NEIN NEIN Pizza Joints ~ smile ---> smile <---

    Just a thought, but then again, "Pathological Ben" might be too Creepy, Insane, Extreme, & ODD even for Herman ~ At least the GOD-Father, who was actually inept at everything himself, had an Endearing Personality ~ smile
